3 WHO IS IN CHARGE OF OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FERRARA? Employer (RECTOR) OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE 2 Occupational medical officer 1 Responsible Officer for Occupational Health Service 2 Staff Occupational Health Service 6 Worker safety and health representative MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS AND HEALTH SURVEILLANCE The chief occupational medical officer may carry out, or may arrange for another physician or other qualified person to carry out, any medical examinations or health surveillance of workers or former workers as he or she considers desirable for the purpose of administering the regulations.

ST - August

4 INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION DEVICES Definition: are all articles which serve to protect workers in even the most extreme conditions. Safety at work is an issue of great importance, and clothing plays an essential role: having clothing and accessories in line with safety standards helps protect from all those risks - common and otherwise - which workers in some sectors may encounter. Individual protection devices typologies: Indicative, but not exhaustive, list of the individual protective equipment for the operations/hazards requiring their use: Parts of the body to be protected Protective equipment Operation / hazard Head Helmet Building sites Civil engineering and underground work High or superimposed places of work Dismantling or demolition work Work in trenches, shafts and tunnels Work under hoisting gear, cranes, etc. Feet Safety shoes (boots) Civil engineering work Dismantling or demolition work Transport and storage Work with very hot or cold fluids (cryogenics) Work with chemicals Ears Ear plugs Work station with a noise Eyes / face Ear muffs Spectacles Goggles Arc-welding mask and helmet Full-face guards Welding, sanding, cutting, drilling Machine-tools producing cuttings Handling chemicals Work with laser beams U/v and i/r radiation Hands / arms Gloves Handling chemicals Work with cryogenic fluids Welding Work on live electrical equipment Pickling or work with edged/pointed tools Respiratory passages Entire body Anti-dust, gas and radioactive dust filtering equipment Air/oxygen breathing apparatus (oxybox, not for use in confined spaces) Safety harness Fall-guard Protective clothing Work station with special atmospheric pollution (dust, smoke, aerosols, vapours, gases) Confined spaces, work underground where there may be a lack of oxygen (smoke, leakage of cryogenic fluids, etc.) Work in high places Chemicals and radioactive substances, heat and cold Welding and work with machine-tools ST - August

6 VIDEO DISPLAY TERMINAL (VDT) SAFETY General VDT safety tips: (1) Worker should take vision breaks about each hour to allow the eye muscles to relax; (2) Correct posture: The workstation should have a padded keyboard, adjustable table and tilt screen. This allows the worker to experiment and find a position that is comfortable (3) Proper light: light should be adequate to help alleviate eyestrain and glare; (4) Screen adjustment: the screen should be tilt; (5) Chair placement. Main worker complains related to VDT use: (1) Eyestrain; (2) Back pain; (3) Neck strain; (4) Fatigue; (5) Headaches; (6) Blurred vision; (7) Arm/hand discomfort. FIRE SAFETY General Safety Mesures The following are general safety measures in establishing and maintaining fire protection in the workplace: (1) Never pile or lay material in a way that it covers or blocks access to firefighting equipment. (2) Make sure to use only approved containers for the separation and disposal of combustible refuse. Remember to always replace the lid. (3) Never store flammable materials near of a building or other structure. (4) Stack and pile all materials in orderly and stable piles. (5) Never let unnecessary combustible materials get accumulated in any part of your work area. (6) Make a periodic clean-up of entire work site and keep grass and weeds under control. (7) Regularly dispose of combustible debris and scrap from your work area. (8) Use only approved containers and tanks for storage, handling, and transport of combustible and flammable liquid. (9) Always perform evaluation procedures before performing operations that present fire hazards like welding. Fire equipments safety mesures (1) Inspect and maintain firefighting equipment regularly. (2) Place an adequate number of firefighting equipment in plain view in your work areas. When appropriate, label the location of each one and make sure it is properly rated. (3) Provide employees with proper training in fire prevention and protection. (4) Prohibit smoking at or around work areas where fire hazards are present. Put up signs, saying NO SMOKING or OPEN FLAMES. ST - August

7 The Fire Triangle: The fire triangle or combustion triangle is a simple model, from the practitioners of firefighting, for understanding the ingredients necessary for most fires. The triangle illustrates the rule that in order to ignite and burn, a fire requires three elements: heat, fuel, and oxygen. The fire is prevented or extinguished by removing any one of them. A fire naturally occurs when the elements are combined in the right mixture. Without sufficient heat, a fire cannot begin, and it cannot continue. Heat can be removed by dousing with water; the water turns to steam and the steam is further heated, taking the heat with it. Introducing particles of powder or any gas in the flame removes heat in the same manner. Separating burning fuels from each other also reduces the heat Without fuel, a fire will stop. Fuel can be removed naturally, as where the fire has consumed all the burnable fuel, or manually, by mechanically or chemically removing the fuel from the fire. Fuel separation is an important factor In fire suppression, and is the basis for most major tactics. Note, however, that the fire stops because a lower concentration of fuel vapor in the flame leads to a decrease in energy release and a lower temperature. Removing the fuel thereby decreases the heat. Without sufficient Oxygen, a fire cannot begin, and it cannot continue. With a decreased oxygen concentration, the combustion velocity gets lower.
